Spring and fall are the most popular time for our family photography sessions. Our beautiful light-filled studio is great for indoor sessions, but during the warmer months, we always plan around the weather so we can do the session outdoors and take full advantage of all the beauty in Northwest Arkansas. We have seasonal landscaping at the studio and also have some favorite nearby locations where we often take photos. We will ask you some questions to help us understand what your goals are for your images and tailor our plans around your goals to be sure you get images you love.
Because we offer custom Christmas cards designed with your photos*, fall sessions are our most popular for families. For that reason, we do ask that if you wish to book a fall session, you reach out several weeks in advance. We will go ahead and put you on our schedule, but if the weather doesn't cooperate on the day we schedule your session, we are always happy to reschedule around the weather.
*Please note, there is a $300 minimum order required in order to purchase custom designed cards from your family session.
How should we prepare? Do you have any tips or clothing suggestions?
We've included some of our favorite images in the gallery on this page so feel free to take some cues from the clothing you see in those photos. We also have a Pinterest board where we have saved lots of helpful information. You can find it here. There are boards that are specific to different kinds of sessions as well as just some helpful tips and pointers. You are always welcome to reach out to run outfit choices by us or ask for suggestions if you have a specific theme in mind.
How long will the session take?
The length of the session depends on the location and if you have any special requests, but a typical family photography session takes between an hour and an hour and a half.
What happens after the session?
When you come for your session, we will give you a folder with some great information to help you be prepared to make decisions at the ordering appointment, which is usually scheduled within two weeks of the session. At that appointment, you will see the images Lisa carefully selected from those she captured during your child's photography session, choose your favorites and place your order. We have many options for creating wonderful art with your favorite images. We can even superimpose your images on your walls using pictures you send to us before the ordering appointment. This allows you to see how they will look on your walls at different sizes so you can be confident in your decisions. It's really helpful to know exactly where your beautiful portraits will go when you get them home.
